    Hi,

    I have a long necked turtle that needs to be re-homed as my parents can no longer look after it since I moved out.
    Her name is Spike, (I didn't know it was a female until recently; maybe Spike-ette now.)

    She has been indoors her entire life so far and does have a small lump on her chin but otherwise she is healthy.
    She is roughly 15-20cm.

    I am looking for someone who will look after her and treat her well.

    I am happy to provide you with a tank, etc if you require it.

    I am located in Melbourne west.

    Hi there, this turtle needs to see a reptile vet urgently, it appears to have a serious abscess in its mouth and a multitude of health issues which are dietary and husbandry related. Unfortunately this turtle is far from healthy and anyone taking it on will need to spend a substantial amount of time and $$$ to rehabilitate it.
